“Dear First_Name Last_Name,”

Step One: Demand immediate response...

“First and foremost, listen carefully. Concentrate. Take this letter to a private place of reading, and draw closer immediately... IMMEDIATELY!

“I HAVE SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOU TO FOLLOW...

“They are not difficult but I must impress upon you NOT TO DELAY. Do not procrastinate or squander this moment. For the future (I am talking about the imminent timetable directly ahead—and what I want to “pull” into your life—what I want to see materialize in a spectacular wave of prosperity and financial fortune!—may soon reward and bless you in a manner which is almost beyond belief!

HEAR ME OUT!! ...First_Name Last_Name. Follow along closely. Digest every word of this...for the secrets I am about to share with you, in deepest privacy, may soon have a profound and dramatic impact on your life.”

Step Two: Promise massive wealth; a new life!

“Regarding what may be, for you, a sudden...sweeping material gain. Catapulting you into a whole new realm of privilege and luxury. Of extraordinary prosperity and material breakthrough. Hurdling you ahead. Securing your future perhaps in a manner of unbelievable splendor and reward. Making you rich and fulfilled beyond your dreams. Transforming everything.

“YES!!! I MEAN EVERY WORD OF WHAT I AM TELLING YOU!
But RIGHT NOW, there is more. Something BIGGER! And I need to get this across to you immediately...”

Step Three: Promote the SCAMmers abilities and talents; always the best in any field, of course!

“My name is Vivian Hart, and I am a visionary. A clairvoyant. A universal paramystic[sic] and deeply gifted psychic. My powers of prophecy are pure and unchallenged. They are true, real... supernatural in a sense.

“But even more than this, dear friend, far greater in fact, is that I am a possessory and master of the deepest prophesier of all...the mystical and  secretive Tarot Cards. 

“And it is because of these Cards...what they have told me...how they have infused and passed their knowledge across to me... that I now dictate this letter to you in complete privacy and confidence.

“Understand. It is within the ancient knowledge of these Cards, the powers held in the picture-glyphics, the hidden subtle messages, the encrypted meanings and mysterious vibrations they impart and “speak” to me through my touch alone (turning them over, running my fingers across the inscriptions, placing them in front of me, one by one. And then—you must know this— by following an exact ritual of spiritual interpretation...I am able to “draw out” their buried secrets)...

Very Important YES...THIS IS AMAZING!! WHAT THESE CARDS HAVE REVEALED TO ME...WHISPERING THEIR REVELATIONS ACROSS AND THROUGH MY CONSCIOUSNESS. INFILTRATING MY SENSES AND FREEZING MY MIND’S EYE ON COLOSSAL PENDING EVENTS. Marvelous, yes...

Back to top

“Listen carefully, dear friend. The Tarot Cards “speak” without talking. They “foretell” without conversing. Channeling their secrets through to me. (Even I cannot explain the forces at work.) Yet now, incredibly, how they have been drawn, as you will see on the confidential enclosure. I HAVE RARELY EVER WITNESSED THIS BEFORE... (this is truly a spectacular configuration)... and it is deeply, incomprehensibly, powerful!

“And during this miraculous unfolding, also—how I, the one and only Vivian Hart, kept hearing the clamor of faraway voices. Passing through to me from another dimension, spiritually. Trying to convey a sensational foreshadowing. Some kind of figure, or figures. Numbers. Very intense. Repeating and flooding my consciousness with the image of SOMETHING…EXTRAORDINARY... HAPPENING!”

Step Three...again: Only this SCAMmer can help you! Aren“t you excited and lucky Ms. Hart has found you?!

“Yes...do not veer from this letter. Let me continue at once...

“UNBELIEVABLE! ! !...”

At last, some real honesty!

“...Something about winning-out...in some possible enormous and marvelous way. (PHENOMENAL!!) This fragmented image is SO REAL. Racing through my head. IT IS INDESCRIBABLE...WHAT IS HAPPENING!...

“Listen to me. Keep reading as I explain...”

Repeat step Three. Perhaps, if it is repeated enough, you will start to believe this self-promotional garbage by the SCAMmer!

“The power I possess, dear friend, is paranormal. It is extra-sensory. It transcends the dimension in which we live, and allows me to connect somehow with forces beyond this world...

My Powers are Real Yes...and this is why, RIGHT NOW...this vision...combined with the ultimate cognition of the Tarot Cards, compels that you follow my instructions. Without wavering. Right away!”

Step One...again: Demand immediate response! Act now!

“Listen and follow along carefully. Do as I Say

“With all that I feel I must do for you now...all that may soon transpire with respect to the accumulation of vast potential spontaneous and sudden FINANCIAL PROSPERITY pouring forth. Igniting your future in a massive pending “inheritance zone” of rewards and significant riches. Of material comforts.Personal success. Fabulous luxuries and opulent possessions. Fortune beyond measure. Real, sustained privileges and appointments of every ordination. Complete freedom and liberation from worry and stress.

“YES, with all of this splendor, collectively, so to speak...in front of you...looming just ahead, and much, much more...

“(Meaning blessings of priceless, true and everlasting fulfillment). A deep soulful happiness, inside and out. Personal contentment and harmony. A fresh optimism and attitude toward life. Plus a perpetual blissful joy and demeanor in your heart. Bringing you a sense of total...complete...all-around balance.”

Step Two...again: Promise more than can ever be expected! Nothing is too grand or extravagant.

“THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO SEE YOU CAPTURE — ALL OF IT—IN THE PERIOD NOW AT HAND! And why, at this moment, I am so anxiously and excitedly reaching out to you!!

“I am SERIOUS, dear friend. Every statement. Every word. Every page of this correspondence. Please understand—based on all I have revealed so far—I need you to connect with me fully, completely. For as I sit at my desk at this very late hour...I feel I am being compelled in some beautiful ay to write this letter. Drawn to this moment. Ordered, by some higher divination of pre-ordained destiny to get this all down on paper.

“And further—going forward, here and now at this precise day and minute and hour...I feel that we, you and I, together bonded in a sense of unity through this letter...are now racing against time!

 “HEED MY WORDS BE VIGILANT IN YOUR ATTENTION! 

WOW! Wait until you read the next paragraph! The promises are truly UNBELIEVABLE! What’s that old saying, “If it sounds too good to be true...”

“For the Tarot Cards, as laid before me (and which I have reproduced on a separate enclosure as they have been miraculously dealt, are “alive ” with energy and revelation. And they are pulling me in their silent deep and ancient practice of paramysticism[sic]—to shut everything else out. To concentrate, to manifest, and to crystallize my vision regarding the impending deliverance of magnificent rewards perhaps BIGGER and GRANDER and more enormous in scope than anything imaginable—transforming your life in what may be a single instant, dear friend— pulling wealth of ultimate riches, material comforts, PROSPERITY AND GREAT FORTUNE directly in your path!

“Yes, I mean every word of this! Do not forsake this correspondence. TIMING IS EVERYTHING! Answer Me Now.”

Did I mention the need for immediate response?!

Back to top

“Understand, I am not trying to frighten you, but do not sit on this imminent destiny—for once certain “tomorrows” have passed, there will be no redemption of events. And whatever superlife [sic] might have been achieved and savored in extraordinary privilege and splendor...it will be gone forever.”

“I am not trying to frighten you”
But it won’t hurt if it gets you to respond... immediately!

“Please, please!!...DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE TAROT CARDS! To the uninitiated, they mean nothing but obscure pictures. But to those truly blessed by prophecy, they speak in immense volumes!

“I am one of those so-gifted at birth by the vision of psychic perception and clairvoyance. And so I compel you to heed my words, First_Name Last_Name, to answer me immediately so that I can draw myself deeper within the inner sanctuary of the Tarot Cards. Elevating my consciousness and intensifying my awareness to a state of ultimate telepathy with their miraculous revelations. Immersing myself in their ancient aura. Summoning my vast powers to pick up the vibrations of your touch (yes...this will be NEEDED, First_Name Last_Name...I will tell exactly how and what you need to do with the Tarot Cards on the accompanying enclosure)…so that I may pull myself into a condition of deep, trance like meditation...mapping-out with precision the future with regard to the brilliant reward-sequences projected to ‘HIT’ just ahead.

“Amazingly...the moment of truth is here, First_Name Last_Name

“Answer this letter. Do exactly as I ask. I will Never Abandon You!

“I am ready to devote myself fully to you and to use every ounce of energy within me to maneuver your life as I feel it must be positioned—and then, only then, to deliver to you the precious guidance through which every one of your most cherished dreams and breakthroughs and physical forms of enrichment and WEALTH and SWEEPING PROSPERITY may soon reward you instantly.

“Understand, First_Name Last_Name, your happiness is all that matters to me...it encompasses me wholly—and it is now, I swear to you—my sole and heart-felt purpose!”

“your happiness is all that matters to me” But don’t forget to send the money!

“To your blessed destiny, I am

“PERSONAL SIGNATURE __________________________

“IMPORTANT: Do not let others handle or touch this form!”

No amount of multi-syllable words will make the above useful for anything, especially for explaining why you lost the $20. However, this is no laughing matter! See below.

WARNING: Never provide your birthdate to anyone unless you are entering a hospital or completing an official government form. NEVER!

With just that much information about you (remember, this person already has your name and address), your identity can easily be stolen, then your bank account and credit cards can be cleaned out and even your life and those of your loved ones put at risk! Yes, it IS that dangerous!

So, let’s see those cards that are so rarely seen grouped together, notwithstanding the fact that they are printed in the letter that is sent to thousands of others on the mailing list. You did notice, I hope, that the letter is not printed on Ms. Hart’s printer. Nor is her “signature” written with any kind of handheld pen. No, the letter is printed, no doubt in the thousands, by the cheapest printer to be found in Ms. Hart’s area. You are asked, of course, to believe that these cards are unique to your personal needs and future. That is actually the most important part of any SCAM; get the SCAMee to believe in the abilities of the SCAMmer. Get the SCAMee to have confidence in the SCAMmer!

IMPORTANT: Note how the “The Wheel Of Fortune” Card appears in the CENTER Configuration. This is an Extraordinary Omen!

“(FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW AND RETURN THIS DOCUMENT AT ONCE)

“Secret Instructions

“Dear Friend,

“Look at the Cards at left but do not analyze. See with your eyes but do not try to interpret. You must follow the precise order of my instructions. First, note how the Tarot Cards have been dealt, left to right, top to bottom. Pay special attention to “The Wheel of Fortune” Card and how it occupies the CENTER position between “The Lovers” and “The Moon.” This is EXTRAORDINARY...I have rarely seen this configuration before, and it is blessedly powerful!

“Please get a pen or pencil, and HAND-SIGN your signature over “The Wheel of Fortune” Card. If you choose, you may turn this paper so it is easier for you to sign your name on the card. (This is Step #1 of your instructions.)

“The Cards are expressing themselves, but do not try to deduce or “read” their encrypted meanings. You will make ill-formed opinions, at best. I will touch your signature, and I will then fix my powers of concentration on the Cards, drawing myself into unity with their ancient karma...pulling myself deeply into their consciousness of revelation. Now, with your pen or pencil, cross out 2 (two) of the Cards at left with an “X” but do NOT cross out “The Wheel of Fortune.” (You have now completed Step #2 of your instructions.)

“Understand. The Tarot Cards do not give away their secrets freely, yet they hold the consummate truth of events and spectacular rewards at hand. Without realizing it, the Cards you have crossed out speak to me and tell me things. Now, with your RIGHT INDEX FINGER, touch EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THE CARDS IN A CIRCULAR MOTION, including the cards you have crossed out and “The Wheel of Fortune” Card. As you touch each Card, make a secret wish to yourself. (This is the Final Step of your instructions, and will help to harmonize the Tarot Cards with spiritual forces and dimensions that empower me psychically.) RETURN THIS DOCUMENT TO ME AT ONCE, AND MAKE SURE, ABSOLUTELY...NOT TO LET ANYONE ELSE HANDLE IT! YOU HAVE PERFORMED THE ORACLE OF ACTIVATION.

“Blessed be,

“VIVIAN HART

“IMPORTANT: WHEN YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE INSTRUCTIONS ABOVE, RETURN THIS ENTIRE DOCUMENT DIRECTLY TO ME!”

One last, muti-paragraph plea to convince you to believe the unbelievable and act immediately, impulsively, irrationally.
